There's a difference between interest and commitment. When you're interested in doing something, you do it only when it's convenient. When you're committed to something, you accept no excuses; only results.
When you get to a plateau, think of it as a landing on the stairway to your goal. And
maintenance is a lifelong plateau, so a bit of "rehearsal" for maintenance isn't the worst thing in the world
Breathe in love & compassion.. Breathe out peace & forgiveness.

I measure and weigh my servings of fruit, cereal and drinks. I eat frozen dinners most of the time, so those are preportioned.

I love SparkPeople

Today is the first day of the rest of my life.

I am responsible for my own happiness.

My name is Bonnie I live in CT ET

I went from 258 to 126 pounds and have maintained it since 12/28/12.

Too Blessed to be Stressed.

Happy Thursday to you!

As we start to "get a hang" of this lifestyle change, we become confident that we can "eyeball" a serving. Have you gotten to this point? Do you:

*Pour cereal straight from the box into your bowl?
*Say "that looks like about 2 Tbsp. of half & half"?
*Say: "I'm sure I ate only 1/2 cup of ice cream"?

If you find yourself overly confident about your portions, you might be in for a shock.

Your challenge today is to MEASURE, MEASURE, MEASURE!!!
Get out your measuring cup, spoons, and scale.
Measure ALL foods and beverages consumed.
You just might be surprised at how much you REALLY are eating & drinking.

Have a FANTASTIC Thursday everyone!
